Fox made the X films, not Marvel Studios. Though Storm had an accent in X1.

It's almost (almost) excusable that those characters were given American accents since they all lived in the States for a significant period of time/all their lives.

T'Challa having an American accent wouldn't make any sense at all given his upbringing, t'would be a massive miss step on MS's part if they Americanized him. You'd be unnecessarily taking away an aspect of him [that's unique to big superhero films].

In flight there is serenity - the motion out, the space between,
The promise of each new life - and possibility.

Swallow flies south before the fall, before the winter can call...
Can call in each borrower - for what was given
